A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is needed for 7-year-old Laura.
The Department of Child Safety removed the little girl from her mother’s care due to a long history of substance abuse and neglect, where Laura was often left home alone. Laura’s father is in prison and her family members have not been located.
Among the CASA volunteer’s responsibilities: Monitoring Laura’s progress in her foster home, connecting with her therapist, doctor, and teachers and working with DCS to determine if the mother would participate in services so that she could be reunited with her daughter, and providing recommendations to the judge on what is the best long-term placement for Laura.
